Home Depot 1/16/2010

Today at Home Depot we made Coasters.
Desiree using the glue to place her tiles
and Caleb building the frame for his tiles.
Tatiana sanding her coaster so it is nice and smooth.
One of the best things about this project is they were able to us LOTS of glue. Normally it seems like I am always saying, "not too much glue" but today I had to keep saying, "more glue...that's not enough".
Here is the finished product. 3 beautiful coasters.

Tatiana's computer.

Tatiana's computer skills have improved so much. She is able to navigate the pages with little or no help. Her favorite program is "Pet Shop" by Fisher Price. In this picture she is creating a fish tank. She picks the background, the props, and the fish. When she is done she is able to watch her fish tank in action.


Desiree started Gymnastics today. January 15th, 2010.

This is Desiree with her Gymnastics instructors.
Desiree had a lot of fun and has been showing us everything she learned.


Caleb started Karate today. January 12th, 2010

Desiree as "Janet the Chipmunk"

Desiree was pretending to be Janet by wearing Caleb's glasses, pulling up her hair, and wearing purple. We have yet to see new movie but the loved the first one. We are waiting till we can check it out from the Library.

Sick Tatiana

My littlest princess has a stomach bug. I pray she is feeling better soon.

Little Mommy ~ Tatiana

Tatiana loves her babies. Here she is reading to her little boy.

Desiree's First day at Midland

She was so excited I didn't even have to set my alarm. She made
sure we were all up nice and early. She also loved being able to
finally use the backpack we got over the summer.

Growing Up

I can't believe how fast Desiree is growing. For example in this picture of her you can see she did her own hair and it looks good. She was so proud of herself.
